do employees, in the aggregate, think about the ethics of business
leaders? As a former executive, I always felt, when I was in the
corporate world, that this question was an intriguing one. A
reasonably perceptive observer couldn’t help but notice that while many
leaders were exemplary role models that employees naturally wanted to
follow, others took advantage of their positional power and seemed to
be chronically above the rules they asked others to play by.
